Lets start with the location. Trappeur's Crossing is a short, easy, and flat walk from the heart of the ski area base, Gondola Square. Bear Lodge is the closest of the Trappeur's buildings to Gondola Square. If you walk about 100 yards, you'll have come to the intersection of Apres Ski Way and Village Drive. Here you'll find a small grocery, deli, restaurant, liquor and wine store called The Wild Plum. You'll also find a coffee and breakfast place, a dinner restaurant, a ski rental shop, and a Bavarian style beer hall with over 50 brews on tap and great happy hour or "Apres Ski" specials. Cross the street and walk another 100 yards and you'll be at the edge of the slopes in Gondola Square. That's right, you only walk about 200 yards from this condo to the slopes and the center of our base area! Besides the slopes, the kids vacation center, or ski school, is the first thing you will see. It is very easy to drop off your kids and head back to the condo or up onto the slopes, as well as when you're picking them up to head home. In fact, only crossing one intersection with a 4 way stop and cross walks, many kids can head home without assistance. The Gondola, the Christie Peak Express lift, and the ticket office are right here too. So are many restaurants and bars, free concerts, special events, and activities galore, including the new "Outlaw" mountain roller coaster that is open in ski season as well as summer. Remember this, though, If you don't feel like walking, all you have to do is call the front desk for the free private shuttle that runs all ski season. They'll take you to and from anywhere in town! In summer, the base area is even more kid friendly than it is during ski season. When all the snow melts, Burgess Creek flows through the area, but the water level is controlled to be at a flow level that is ideal for kids to splash around. There are even a couple of "beaches" along the creek. There are also tons of activities. There's a mini golf course, a high ropes course, a 4 story rock climbing wall, summer tubing, and other attractions. There are many restaurants and bars, as well as a large stage. This area plays host to movie nights, free concerts, art shows, hot air balloon glows, and more. Don't forget, the ski area sits on national forest. So your condo is literally right next to a national forest trailhead. You can hike or bike from your door! You can also ride up the Gondola for food, beverages, amazing views, sunsets, or to hike and bike around to the highest parts of the ski area with a 2000 vertical foot head start! This area is also connected to other trails too. The Mountain Sneak trail, Mt. Werner trail, and Burgess Creek trail all converge within 100 yards of The Bear Lodge. These paved trails are perfect for walking, strolling, and they connect with the Yampa River Core Trail, which leads to downtown Steamboat, the Emerald Mountain trail system, and beyond. The whole town is right out your door. Okay, so the location is great! So is the condo itself!
